I am passionate about

I am most passionate about giving back to my community and instilling positive change around the world. I truly believe that we should treat others as we would want to be treated, and this includes the planet we live on.


I volunteer frequently with local food drives and literacy groups. I am also a tutor and mentor to elementary, middle school and high school students. I primarilly tutor in Algebra, but I also tutor in French, English, Language Arts, Science and History. Additionally, I serve as a regional co-chair for an employee resource group at MUFG called NextGen Leaders which focuses on creating opportunities for the Next Generation. I volunteer for blood drives and help promote clean water and recycling in our local communities.
